Much of the responsibility for keeping a check on the energy consumption of industrial and commercial premises lies with the Facilities Manager. However, building management specialist Optimised Buildings maintains that it has recognised a general lack of understanding of how BEMS should operate, with the result that some end users are paying more for their energy than they need.

FMs are typically responsible for up to 80 per cent of the total energy being consumed in commercial buildings, says the company, with up to half of this being managed through the Building Energy Management System.

To help educate maintenance and FM teams in the art of operating and understanding a BEMS, Optimised Buildings has announced its first modular BEMS eLearning training course, covering a comprehensive range of activities designed to deliver efficient energy use in buildings.
